1 dead, 20 injured in Washington D.C. shooting

One teenager was killed and 20 others were injured after at least three shooters opened fire during an unauthorized gathering in Washington, authorities said.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser at a press conference said that the gathering violated the city’s coronavirus-induced ban on public meetings of more than 50 people.

“There were certainly was too many people out there, you know, with the COVID-19. We can’t tolerate these types of gatherings in our city during COVID-19. It’s just too dangerous,” D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said.
